Hi Dudes,

Installed Apache onto XP. Trying to create an ASP.Net web application and I get "web access failed" and asks me to try an alternate root. Where can I place my files on creation i.e. what is the equivalent of IIS's WWWRoot in Apache land please ?

You can't run ASP.NET webpages on Apache. You need IIS. The apache files are usually in program files\apache\html

On my installation of Apache under Windows 2000, the equivalent to wwroot is c:\program files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs

IIS is not free.

However you can get hold of a copy of Cassini which comes with web matrix (or seperately) - this is a limited web server (only localhost) although you can get the source and alter this if you wish (check out http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=7&tabid=41).

Also I you can use ASP.NET with Apache (ofcourse there's the mono release of .NET - http://www.go-mono.com/asp-net.html) or check out http://www.codeproject.com/aspnet/cassini_apache_101.asp 

Hope this helps

Webmatrix is a good option or if you really want to get IIS on your Windows XP Home machine check this site out. If you have XP Professional then you can just add IIS through the add/remove windows components
